Brigitte & Rod.
Wedding photographer Mark Le Grange
On the 18th of November, with the breath-taking backdrop of Bosjes Chapel, I was fortunate to capture the nuptials of my close friends Brigitte Willers and Roderick Labuschange.
It is always special photographing a love story that has spanned several years, as the subtle nuances and comfortability captures stolen moments that are authentic and real.
Brigitte and Rod tied the knot after 9 years of togetherness, which has produced some incredible memories, garnered special friendships and most importantly seen them bring their son Samuel into the world. Sammy is clearly the centre of their world and was an integral part of their celebratory day.
Brigitte was a vision in her bespoke Kobus Dippenaar wedding dress and Rod looked ever the dapper gentleman in his suit and bow tie.
I loved how some traditions were given a quirky twist; like the smashing of the Pavlova instead of a traditional cake cutting.
The guest list was nothing short of VIP with an eclectic mix of childhood friends, rugby players, celebrities and family from near and far; with Top Billing covering the event from beginning to end.
One thing is for certain, this was an evening celebrating love, laughter in abundance and friendship.
